yum update on F8 now hangs as of today



For a variety of reasons, I'm still using F8 on my laptop.
I've been keeping up-to-date whenever new packages appear.

Today I see that there are a number of new packages:

================================================================================
 Package                      Arch     Version         Repository         Size

 xscreensaver-gl-extras-gss   i386     1:5.07-3.fc8    updates-newkey      43 k

but yum hangs during the 'transaction test'

CPU time goes to zero... there is no activity.

I tried 'yum clean all'... no change.
I tried yum install of only a single package, and it still hangs.
I tried turning on debug:
   yum -d 10 update "imlib2"

and the last few lines are:

Since I just received notice that all outstanding bugzilla entries against F8
are about to be deleted, there is no point in submitting one.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

TIA
